coral :: corallium rubrum

 

Our coral and sea urchin belt buckle has been featured by Pillow Peels out of Queen Creek, Arizona. Check out their beautiful coral pillows.

We are soooo loving:

  1. Seba – Red Coral 4 Bar Stationary. A personalized note never looked so good! Bliss Think Ink from Portland, Oregon, a must got-to for finely crafted, personalized stationary.
  2. Turquoise and Coral Necklace created by Stacy at Verdant Designs, Houston. The craftsmanship is simply impeccable. The coral is made of tiny seed beads. You must see the close-ups.
  3. Cormorant and red coral – archival print. Created by United Thread out of Salem, Massachusetts. Don’t miss out on this talented artist’s work. Espescially the Spiny Lobster and the Peanut Head Moth.
